TechnoRetro Dads: News Blast!

by TechnoRetro Dads

In a stellar display of prophetic prognosticative predictions, shazbazzar and JediShua unwittingly turned history into news in this NEWS BLAST!

It seems that the world has turned TechnoRetro with the incredibly timely (and unlikely) news blast that has come out of nowhere (literally, the empty space of our brains).  And you can hear is all this morning for less than a copper penny.



This brief News Blast will catch you up on the most significant TechnoRetro NEWS hitting the airwaves as March concludes and April begins, so WAKE UP!

In the NEWS

Feelin’ Newsy?  You will be when you wake up to this morning’s News Blast.  Superman turns 80 later this month on the anniversary of the release of Action Comics #1.  Direct Current Comics will release a limited edition of the premiere issue of Aluminum Boy.  With Facebook’s popularity fading in recent weeks, The WELL (Whole Earth ‘Lectronic Link) was recently purchased by Innovative Online Industries in a move to reintroduce this early ISP/forum to users.  Hasbro and Twentieth Century Fox reveal plans to make a movie based on the classic game Operation.  Jonah Hill and Rowlf are confirmed to star in the film which will begin filming soon.  And in a story that’s truly out-of-this-world, a miniature space station has been discovered in orbit around Earth equipped with a rocket that will evidently be launching for Mars in the near future.  SETI and NASA confirm the construction crew plans to colonize the red planet before man will plant his flag on Mars.


Vinyl Scratchback

The Doobie Brothers, Bjork, Beatles, Def Leppard, Queen, and Styx fill your ear buds with folly before the ‘Dads replay some favorites from the past five years and even reveal one never-before-heard tune made especially for Jason Swank of Rebel Force Radio.

Aluminum Boy, Carpenter Ants, Operation, The WELL
